Against the State Summary


Against the State: Studies in Sedition and Rebellion by Janet Coleman

By the author of "Political Thought from Plato to Nato", this text explores the political disobedience of individuals and groups across the centuries. From the involuntary matrydom of Socrates to the voluntary martyrdom of the Christians in the Roman Empire; from passive opposition to the State to the violent options of revolution, this book considers the many different approaches to sedition and rebellion. The book sets out to reveal the reasoning behind some of history's thinkers - Thomas More, Sigmund Freud and Karl Marx - and how some of the more notorious opponents of the State in the past achieve a hero's status in modern thinking.
